Yes, you heard it right, “What is Fasal Bima Yojana?” Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana is a very ambitious scheme of
government to help the farmers of India. Every year maximum farmers suffer the loss in their crop. Yet there are about more than half of farmers are unaware of this scheme and bear their loss on their own.
The pace of owning Kisan Credit Card is very slow as compared to the population is in need. Kisan Credit Card help farmers to sell their crops easily at a time and get the amount directly in their bank accounts. The cash system is not there to avoid
corruption and monetary misuse. According to the survey studies about 70 percent of farmers are unaware of this Kisan Credit Card facility.
There is no doubt that the government’s initiative is quite good but still, this policy is a far reach for farmers. As we all know, the maximum number of farmers are uneducated or less-educated. So, expecting from them that they will apply for the insurance, is not possible. People are not even aware of these types of policies then how they can apply for insurance.
It’s been about 5years still, the maximum number of farmers are not having any knowledge about the scheme. It becomes very difficult to decide whose fault is in this. Is it government’s fault that they didn’t reach to maximum farmers and educate them? Or is it farmer’s fault that they take the least interest in knowing about their rights and various facilities? With this question, the new question arises that, is it possible for an illiterate person to learn about his or her rights and law?
The only problem with the scheme is that people are not aware of this facility. It becomes a far reach for people, just because the scheme has been not promoted properly and the farmers are not educated about the facility.
It is not only the fault of government but somehow we can say, there is a problem with farmers. They don’t take much interest in schemes and the illiteracy also make them unaware about their rights and facilities.
I think to make its reach to the huge population, the government should spend an ample amount of time in promoting the scheme and assigning the authority to reach to masses individually and educate them about the facilities.
There are various schemes by the government which farmers are unaware of it. So, the government should be supposed to educate the farmers. As well as, farmers also need to take a step ahead to learn about their rights and the various schemes that could provide help and support in their farming strategy.
The government should need to respond quickly to the query and problem of the farmers. The delay in response could cause their life and family.
The government needs to manage their agricultural funding properly and allocate the money to the place where it is best used.
Farmers take farming advice first they sow crop according to the need of the soil and the available resources with the farmer.
